Ben Stokes will lead England for the first time with Joe Root absent to attend the birth of his second child.

There is still some activity out on the outfield but a lot of the players are in the dressing room as the drizzle falls.

Ben Stokes has his feet up. It doesn't look like captaincy has changed him. Sam Curran is next to him with a face mask around his chin.

The 'new normal'.

At least cricket encourages you to post on MOT occasionally ;-)

He may not play in this match but Stuart Broad looks like he's off to play Roger Federer over five sets at Wimbledon.

No sign or rain up here

I'll resist reading this topic from here on in case play resumes so I can watch the highlights on BBC 2 at 7pm without knowing the score

Meanwhile Swannie enjoy whacking Hector :lol:

3 month wait for a bit of cricket and the first day is largely a wash out :roll:

Watched the highlights show at 7pm

Only 20 minutes of the actual highlights shown due to the poor weather, 40 minutes of chit-chat

Looking at these West Indies bowlers I reckon some of our wickets could tumble like skittles

I'm doing the wait till 7pm to catch the highlights thing too, which is why I didn't look at this thread yesterday
I wanted to flash this watch, I flash it all the time. It's my antique pocket watch and it makes me look British...and I need that for my analysis. It is a gorgeous gold pocket watch however and I'm very proud of it. You see my grandfather, on his death bed, ..sold me this watch!

Building into a good test match, 2nd best so far but if England can get a 200ish run lead could be interesting.

204 all out was a poor start to this series

Stokes our highest scorer with 43, Burns, Buttler & Bess made 30+ runs, not great

Wood & Archer will have bowl much better if we wish to win this match

Far too many wasted short balls from the pair of them
